"I only buy autographs when I'm about 95% sure it's authentic. You could never apply that to later MJ autographs. The best you could say about a later one is: "probably" . Your problem will surface when you come to re-sell…"

"I would not buy this Michael Jackson. It has some real traits and I think it probably is real, but it looks like a forgery. Would you want an autograph that the TPA called real because it was simply more likely real than not?
